Choosing the right class

Recent student feedback

5.0 stars I really enjoyed this class. Rich was a great trainer, and I feel ready to use MS Project more efficiently. I would definitely recommend this class to others.
4.2 stars This class was an absolute pleasure. So often when attending a training the instructor goes directly from the book, however Mr. O'Donnell mixed in real world situations that he has run across which was very helpful. He was a reat instructor.
5.0 stars I traveled over 500 miles for this class and was worth every cent!! Pat is a great instructor with a vast amount of information and experiences to share. Would take other courses from here if needed.
5.0 stars Pat is an excellent resource and has given me many great tips and tools for the microsoft program as well as project related tips outside of the software that were relevent to me as a I a project manager. I would recommend this class to my other co-workers.
